By the way, you didn't say how high was your keyboard. The surface of the white keys should be between 28.5-inch to 29-inch from the floor, no more, no less.

I wouldn't fight the piano. I prefer to make a quick coarse tuning to put it at A440 and then fine tune without worrying about drifting. If I was the usual tuner of this piano and if I had tuned it at 440 and if I were the one who will tune it the

I like blue lighting for practice. There are studies about the connection between blue light and concentration. Based on my experience it definitely is worth giving this a try. The darker hued and richer the blue light is, the better. http://ww
